- Summary: The MMORPG Age of Wushu recreates an ancient Chinese world of Kung Fu. If words like Wushu are new to you, fear not. In such martial arts movies as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragonor Hero, heroes leap from rooftops and display death-defying feats of martial prowess. In Age of Wushu, you can perform all these unbelievably powerful skills and become a legendary Wushu master. [Snail USA]… Expand
Apr 24, 2013Age of Wushu is successful for what it is and it has a community of players who enjoy the game and developers who actually care about their community. The translation is iffy, combat can be awkward, and there are some confusing elements to the game, but it does encourage interaction with other players and has plenty of content.
May 2, 2013While there’s no doubt that AoW has levels of intricacy that are unusual in MMOs today, those intricacies are numerous, and the localization an ongoing effort, making the whole experience difficult for many. Not everyone has the time or the patience to read through scads of text, assimilate and apply those many, many lessons. For those that do, power to you. Here’s hoping you find plenty of gold at the end of that complicated, text-heavy rainbow.
May 16, 2013I gave this game a 10 because I see people have given this great game a 0, which is absurd. My real score is 85. This is by far the best MMO I have ever played, I'm a long-time and retired WOW vet, I have played every MMO that has ever come out. To me, this game sits on the top, second to none. There are some bugs, and bad translations, but compared to any other MMO, this one is much more solid. I look at MMO's like SWTOR and GW2, these titles had 10x the budget, and were 10x less an MMO, I'm a huge star wars fan, but that did nothing to help SWTOR, I'm not going to get into the game, and explain how everything works, it's free to download, and free to play. This is the Eve of Kung Fu games, beautiful graphics for an MMO, great controls, great music, and replay value is off the charts. I have made 8 google accounts to experience all schools since you can only have one toon, which is something that I hope gets changed in the future. Overall, this game demands attention and skill that most will never understand probably.… Expand
Apr 10, 2013This game gives me a chance to touch ancient Chinese background. Few westerners know what real Chinese Kung fu looks like before entering Age of Wushu. To be honestly, I don't know exactly what to do from the moment I log in. Gradually as I walked deep into the story line, I get addicted. Great game!… Expand
Oct 23, 2013First of all I would like to say that the concept of the game was very unique and attractive. I'm giving this game a score of 6 because of its mixed blending of cons and pros. The cash shop items is untouchable for its high price. If you are f2p I will say just stop playing. Hardcore playing won't give you good result. Though u can level up your skills fast but u can't level up meridians in few years which will make a huge difference between players.VIP players level up 5 times faster which is unacceptable. Company trying to make money by publishing incomplete games in different languages and regions. Beginners will must confuse at beginning and that's guaranteed.… Expand
Apr 11, 2013Ok I have only spent a day on this game but first impressions are really bad translations are terrible and explanations are really confusing.
Gold spamm sellers dominate chat and the "gossip" function mean they can't be blocked "joy".
The graphics are nice and the kung fu is spot on its just a huge shame fights are almost in slow motion and are really clunky.
I did alot of reading up on this game prior to playing and alot of the stuff they spouted just is not true you have to pay for VIP just to broadcast chat messages.
The first group quest is shocking the NPC runs in and aggroes the whole base but dont worry it buggs out you cna sometimes stand still and complete the quest by proxy one poor guy had 3 runs and did not complete it therefore his story quest could not continue very poor game mechanics.
overall it is brain overload with little or no explanationa s to what your supposed to be doing ore waht path your supposed to take it feels like someone has force fed you the wrong type of mushrooms and let you loose in a crazy land where nothing makes sense.
I really will try for one more day before hitting perma delete and awaiting neverwinter, i`m gutted as I thought it would last until then.
Bottom line buggy clunky and painfully confusing… Expand
Nov 5, 2013Where to begin, okay so when I first looked into this game i was a little bit skeptical only because it was not one of those 'AAA' mmorpgs titles but that didn't stop me from downloading AOW because I thought the concept of the game was really interesting and I was well and truly intrigued. When I got in game HOWEVER, I was slightly shocked and it got worst. Here is a list to keep things simple.
- No voice acting at all! To be honest, that killed it for me. I wasn't expecting voice acting like in swtor but at least some random dialogue here and there would have made the game more engaging.)
- Dodgy controls This was sort of a big one. The auto pathing was horrible, jumping on roof sometimes would be glitchy and I could walk through some stall vendors)
- Complex and doesn't really explain much Okay I don't have any problems with learning new things in games but this is just weird. The game offers these cultivation thing and I had to read up on it off game to even get what it does. There are more but you get the picture.)
- Good fighting animations but dodgy The animations are pretty cool but the fighting itself is laggy and made things boring real quick.)
- Questing is a bore. I don't have problems with generic quest like they have in AOW because coming from a WoW player, I expect it and i grew to live with it but because of the combination of the dodgy combat and how far the quest is from the quest giver most the of the time I actually spend more time auto pathing back and forth than fighting.)
Overall the concept of the game is great and unique but it seems as though Snail games didn't have the budget to execute it well which is what ultimately makes this game a fail. I also have problems logging for the first time which took me an hour to fix only because i had to validate my email and it never told you to....… Expand
Jul 22, 2013I tried this game with some friends. I like sand box PVP games so I really wanted to enjoy it. After about 8 hours we could find literally no reason to log in. Others have mentioned the wonky controls, dated animations/graphics, terrible pathfinding and these are all true. What I most disliked was:
1. The cash (grab) shop. I understand that game companies need to make money and I can, and do, support the games I play. Other F2P MMOs manage to survive without being obvious and unrelenting cash-grabs, however. AoW is by FAR the worst example I've seen.
2. I've PVP'd successfully in EVE online for four years, so I have no issues with learning a difficult game. My issue with AoW, however, is that it is poorly designed and entirely unintuitive. As of the last time I played there was virtually no information, documentation or tutorials to help you understand how things were supposed to work and what you were supposed to be doing. The final straw was when I tried to sell something at a merchant and I got a screen about bidding on the stall only during certain hours (and with nothing explaining wtf was going on, of course).
I've played dozens of MMOs, with varying results, but the only one I ever actively despised is this one. It has literally nothing appealing about it.… Expand
